Organising Chaos Against Real Madrid

Organising Chaos Against Real Madrid

I shared a thread on Twitter recently about my thoughts on how Liverpool can beat Real Madrid, and it received such positive feedback that I’ve decided to expand on it here. The thread is linked below for those that want to check it out: https://twitter.com/DistanceCovered/status/996345845749637120 Now, as I’ve mentioned in the thread, the key factor when determining whether Liverpool are likely to win against any opponent is whether the opposing team is vulnerable in transition or not. Liverpool are gradually …
Are Liverpool 'listos' for La Liga signings?

Are Liverpool 'listos' for La Liga signings?

AIPro's Dave Hendrick took his A-Eye Scouted series to Spain this week for a look at La Liga. Journalist Karl Matchett was along for the ride to give his take on eight hidden gems of Spanish football that could be a fit for the Reds. I'm not sure which contributor was Don Quixote and which was Sancho Panza on this epic search but they came up with some intriguing suggestions for the next Spanish Liverpool star. La Liga has always …
The Return of Roy - Crystal Palace v Liverpool

The Return of Roy - Crystal Palace v Liverpool

Come the summer of 2010 I’d had enough of Liverpool Football Club. Before you reach for your fiery torch and summon a lynch mob to my house I must offer up a defence.

Alexandre Lacazette: Under the Microscope

Alexandre Lacazette, who appeared bound for Atletico Madrid, before a transfer ban scuppered those plans, very recently claimed that the Premier League is a:
'Great league, with interesting teams'.
Perhaps the most interesting of all teams right now is Liverpool FC, a club 0dds-on to secure the services of £50-60 million rated Virgil Van Dijk, and headed by Jürgen Klopp. However, would Lacazette suit Liverpool, and if so, what would he bring to the club? For this analysis it would …
FSG Have Failed to Deliver

FSG Have Failed to Deliver

If ever there was a headline to cause debate this is it. No doubt many will read the title of this piece and either strongly agree or disagree without reading the bloody article. In the last few years I have strongly defended FSG and also given them heavy criticism. There are things they have done very well and things they have done very poorly. Let’s begin with the positives. On 15th October 2010, much to all our relief, FSG, then …
